Toronto Dangerous Drugs Lawyers
Whether you take medicine due to sickness or to relieve pain, you have a reasonable expectation for the medicine to work properly without causing harm to your body. Despite this, drugs are sometimes improperly manufactured or labeled. When drugs are faultily produced or fail to present all possible side effects, you can experience unexpected and costly consequences. The Health Products and Food Branch of Health Canada is responsible for assessing the safety of all drugs legally sold in Toronto. Even if the over-the-counter drug meets the industry standards presented by the HPFB, the manufacturer can still be liable for any unintended side effects that were not clearly labeled on the product.
Consuming dangerous over-the-counter drugs is frightening and the manufacturers of these drugs deserve to be held accountable for their actions. If you or someone you love has been harmed by over-the-counter medication, then you need a knowledgeable Toronto dangerous drugs lawyer to defend your rights. At Mazin & Associates, PC, our lawyers understand the pain that you have experienced. We will do everything in our power to work with you to get you the compensation that you deserve.
Causes of Dangerous Drugs
Over-the-counter drugs are generally considered simple and easy solutions to common ailments. These drugs do not require a prescription because they do not need to be regulated by medical professionals. These drugs can still be dangerous if they:
- Are faultily designed
- Are improperly produced due to manufacturing error
- Fail to warn of all possible side effects
In all of these cases, the manufacturer is liable for the product that they produced. An important part of dangerous drugs cases is that the manufacturer doesn’t have to be aware of the side effect to be liable for it. Producing a drug without understanding the full extent of its consequences is negligent and the manufacturer should be held accountable. Our dangerous drugs lawyers will work hard to hold these producers liable for their careless actions.
